Niseko, Japan is a world-renowned powder snow destination for snowboarder and skier enthusiasts. There are 4 different ski resorts in one mountain and the seafood in Hokkaido is truly amazing! I highly recommend Niseko for everyone to visit, may it be for a short trip, snowboarding trip with friends and of course, a snowboarding family trip with kids.
Do you worry about bringing your kids for a snowboarding trip? Are your kids holding you back?
Some people won’t go on a holiday because they feel like they will be attending the needs of their children instead of having fun. It is notably that, other’s won’t trust other people to take care of their kids. I get that! I surely wouldn’t trust other people either without any extensive research.
If the safety and activities of your children holding you back by booking that vacation. Don’t worry! Niseko has a variety of activities for your children to do and enjoy while you are rocking the slope.
Here is the list of options for you:
- Private Babysitter

Niseko has 4 interlinked ski resorts: Grand Hirafu, Hanazono, Annu’puri and Niseko Village. All of the four ski resorts offer private or group lessons to your kids from 3 – 5 years old.
